Sustainable Technologies

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description The University Research in Sustainable Technologies Program is a joint project of Massachusetts TURI and the Center for Environmentally Appropriate Materials (CEAM) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, with support from the Commonwealth’s Strategic Envirotechnology Partnership (STEP). The program taps the research capabilities of all five University of Massachusetts campuses to advance the investigation, development, and evaluation of sustainable technologies that are environmentally, occupationally, and economically sound. The program provides research funding to faculty on a competitive basis and encourages faculty/industry partnerships and cross-campus collaboration. Industry partners provide guidance, propose applications for new technologies, and, in some cases, evaluate and/or adopt processes and technologies from the research. Recent projects have included research on alternatives to PVC in medical applications, ultrasonic-assisted de-inking system for mixed office waste papers, and development of a building commissioning model for energy and resource efficiency for University of Massachusetts buildings.
